Almong the delightful crew of Fresh From Santa Barbara Culinary Academy was the owner and winemaker of WINE CASK –
Doug Margerum. Much to my delight. For I had celebrated my 40th at WINE CASK with a goup of friends from all over a few years back. It was a very special experience then – and once again last nite. He shared his experience of first tasting wine from a barrel on family trip to France. All of his senses were engaged and he was hooked. He began crafting WINE CASK into a bistro in the 80’s, and now it is a destination of choice in Santa Barbara among food and wine cognoscenti locally and throughout the world. On the way out he handed be a bottle of his M% – a blend of five Rhone Valley varieties (Syrah, Grenache, Mourv´dre, Counoise, and Cinsault – hmmm yummy, thank you Doug!www.winecask.com
